Yes PL is the correct comand.
Ever notice how the place electrical wire in schematic icon is the same as
the place line icon in PCB!
This helps with my confusion :-)
Shouldn't Protel know when it's placing a mechanical line, that to me is a
bug!

this is not a bug
you are just using the wrong command

use P L
place line for mech layers

when you hit TAB a different dialog will pop and it won't swap you back
to a copper layer

P T is for electrical tracks

if you think about it, it is not bad
also the last used width will stick for each type which is nice
